I just acquired a Barr but do not have the suspension spring. Does anyone know if there is an acceptable susbstitute from the supply houses, i.e. Timesavers, LaRose, etc.? If not, does anyone happen to know the thickness of the spring so that I can make one? Many thanks.

I've often used mainsprings from alarm clocks
